A wonderful evening.

My husband and I had a lovely meal he had steak which was so tender and I had chicken which was fabulous. We selected an outside table and watched the world go by as we enjoyed our evening. the staff were friendly and polite. The food was of a high standard and priced fairly.

Went here beginning of November and still able to eat outside and still very busy, this is because of the wonderful staff, food and atmosphere. Hummus and haloumi cheese to die for....... Husband says lamb and beef to die for....we both love this place and will be back in April. Remember I left my glasses and you kindly looked after... More

We went to Limelight 9 years ago on a couple of occasions during our stay in Ayia Napa and we loved it. While on holiday again this September we went again with friend who we had told all about it s and it did not let us down. Fabulous food and plenty of it. Efficient friendly service and a quiet...

We ate here twice and thoroughly enjoyed both nights. Very very good fresh food, huge portions and friendly staff. Like most of Ayia Napa very family friend. Watch out for the cats everywhere but not a problem at all.

The restaurant is in a small quite side street; end of October, we could still eat outside, under a starry sky. Very friendly welcome from the staff who speaks good English (and Russian, and some French!); we chose to have the famous Mezze for Two; a succession of succulent dishes, hugely generous and cooked/prepared to perfection; never had the famous...

We visited this restaraunt as my parents had been before and highly recommended the shoulder of lamb, so we went to try it out. We ordered two lamb shoulders as they said it was for two and there were four of us. They bough out a huge plate of meat which we were sure was for all of us until... More

Been a few times now always pretty good, the leg of lamb is our favourite just 29 Euros for 2 although there is enough for 3 or 4 you get a choice of potatoes and some nice veg . I advise no starter or you won't eat it all . Good service from Paul and Andreas

I had the Chicken in an Orange Sauce which was amazing, one of my friends had the mixed grill and the other a T-bone steak which we were all suprised he finished judging by the size of it!! It's a little bit out of the way from the... More

My favourite restaurant in Agia Napa !!! – no ……… in the world !!! I’m a meat lover and they do love their meat at Limelight. Located top right of the square around the back, the area is run down as business and people are moving down to the harbour. It was very quiet up there but the restaurant was... More
